A fired Walmart worker is being offered his job back after he was terminated by the store for helping a woman being attacked last Sunday. FOX News reports Oct. 19 that Kristopher Oswald has been offered his job back after Walmart fired him on the grounds of violating a store's policy when he attempted to rescue a woman from being attacked by a man in the store's parking lot.
A spokeswoman for Walmart said the company has left multiple messages in an effort to “welcome him back” to the Hartland Township store in Michigan.
Oswald told WXYZ-TV in an earlier interview that he wasn't sure he wanted his job back after being fired by Walmart.
The 30-year-old Walmart worker was on his break around 2:30 p.m. when he noticed a woman being suddenly attacked by a young man. When he asked if she needed help, the man began assaulting Oswald. Oswald was able to get on top of him, but two other men jumped in and began attacking him.
Livingston County sheriff’s deputies arrived on the scene, stopped the altercation, and arrested Dillon Tierney, 17. He's being charged with assault and drunk driving. The two other men he was with were reportedly released after being questioned by authorities.
Oswald had worked for Walmart seven weeks before the incident Sunday. Details surrounding how he violated company policy weren't specified.
It wouldn't be shocking if this fired Walmart worker rejected the store's offer after they turned their backs on him for helping a woman who clearly needed help.
